The 20th Annual Fiesta de La Feria will be held Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Join us for a wonderful day of fun and entertainment. It is Free Admission!!!
Twenty years ago, the community came together to honor our Winter visitors we love to call “Winter Texans.” Food and music was provided and everyone had fun.
Fast forward 20 years and the celebration has evolved into a full day festival that still honors our Winter Texans while also including entertainment for all residents of La Feria and the Rio Grande Valley. The Fiesta provides a variety of live bands, plenty of food, arts & crafts, and family oriented games.
There are various dance contests held in the afternoon, as well as a Grito contest. Prizes are awarded to the top winner in each category. Part of the fun is the annual Pie Bake-Off and Cup Cake Contest. The top prize in each receives a cash award and the ribbons are awarded to the first, second, and third place winners.
The Cultural Arts Center at 122 E. Oleander Avenue is the place to go to see art from local students and to have fun with Karaoke, as well as enjoy other activities. Last year the City began a competition for children vying for the title of Tiny Mr. & Miss Fiesta de La Feria and Lil’ Mr. & Miss Fiesta de La Feria. It was very successful and the 2nd Annual Tiny and Lil’ Mr. & Miss Fiesta de La Feria will be held again in the Cultural Arts Center. See the schedule of events in the 2013 Events Program and Visitor’s Guide for times of the events.
One of the entertainment groups at the very first gathering was the group known as “Los Angeles del Sur” (English translation: “The Angels of the South”). “Los Angeles del Sur” have played every year the Fiesta has been held and will be performing for the 20th Annual Fiesta de La Feria from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. For a list of all the fabulous entertainers that will be joining us this year, click here: Fiesta Music Poster2013 A
